Reproduction in Oak-Hickory Forest Stands of the Missouri Ozarks
Most of the forest stands in the Missouri Ozarks have been overcut, high-graded, grazed, and repeatedly burned. Not only is their present productivity far below the potential productive capacity of the land but natural regeneration has not been satisfactory during the last half century, a period during which burning was extremely destructive. The reproduction in these oak-hickory stands is largely of sprout origin, slow-growing, poor in form, and composed of a high proportion of the less desired species. The authors point out, however, that this is a temporary situation resulting from misuse. With adequate protection not only will a reasonably good stand develop from most of the present reproduction but the quality and quantity of reproduction will increase through natural processes.
